hi,

i'm programing an applet using jdk 1.3 and no swing, but awt classes.

in a panel i use the paint(Graphics g) method to paint some lines etc. to form "tabs" at the top of the applet.

when i first load the applet, these tabs are not being displayed. but when i drag some other window (e.g. other browser window) over the applet and away again the tabs are being painted suddenly.

this happens when using netscape 4.78 & java-plugin 1.3.1

can anyone tell me how i get the applet to paint these tabs straight away at the beginning?!

thanx for your help.

use
repaint()
in your init() method.

hi Venci75,

just adding repaint to the init() method didn't work for my, but that was because i obviousely had to repaint all my panels as well.

so i added  mypanel1.repaint(); mypanel2.repaint(); mypanel3.repaint(); etc. to the init() of my applet. now it works.

thanx a lot for the hint!
